They were the last true rivals in IndyCar.
From 2003 to 2007, Sebastien Bourdais and Paul Tracy were top adversaries, and the two top drivers in what was then the CART, then Champ Car series.
“PT” won his overdue first and only career title in 2003, before Bourdais, who entered the sport that year, then reeled off four in a row from 2004 to 2007.
After Bourdais rolled through the field at the Milwaukee Mile last week, Tracy praised his drive during the NBCSN broadcast.
The two were reunited during the pre-race show for tonight’s Iowa Corn 300. While Bourdais and Tracy had their well-documented rivalry on the track, but NBCSN put it to the test in Iowa when they stuck the two IndyCar drivers in a car together for an afternoon drive.
